Blue Ram Help Please

I went to Petsmart last night and found they had two german blue rams left. One of them looks like a female full of eggs (I think) and a red stomach. I am pretty sure that this means she is exhibiting spawning behavior. But the only other blue ram looks more like a female than a male... Can anyone tell me if I have a pair or two females? If it is a pair, any breeding tips? I put them in a quarantine tank alone for now.

It's hard to see the pink bellies because of your stone, but they both look like females to me. Neither have the pointy tip on the front of their dorsal fins.

It's good to buy males and females separately, this prevents breeding siblings.

In theory this would be wonderful.
If you can buy from breeders then you are on your way!
If you buy at a LFS or box store you are probably getting the fish from the smae supplier and likely at least related IMO...
